EOS 2019Dates, Theme & Venue Announced
Following last year’s announcement that that the seventh annual European Outdoor Summit (EOS) will take place from 26th to 27th September 2019 in Interlaken, Switzerland, The European Outdoor Group (EOG) is now pleased to announce the venue and theme for this year’s Summit.
The EOS brings together high calibre leaders in the outdoor industry from across Europe and beyond, providing them with a unique opportunity to learn, network and share with like-minded individuals. The Summit delivers inspirational speakers debating and discussing the pertinent topics, and this year’s theme will beThe Outdoor Industry - Redefining Boundaries.
Discussion points will include; whatdo business leadersneed to doin order to shape a company of the future? The once firm and rigid business model boundaries needing to be rethought, and the ability of a CEO and her/his team to reshape an organisation’s structure in a way that supports innovation and dynamic change, will be vital to success.
Keynotes and breakout presentations will look at the importance of outsourcing strategies, which will lead to workforces being a combination of both internal and external specialists. Combining this with establishing collaborative relationships with other industries, competitors and communities will provide experience, economies of scale, creativity and diversity. It’s a complex business world and time spent learning, thinking and networking on these issues will be a sound investment!
The EOS 2019 will take place at Congress Centre, Kursaal Interlaken.Located in the heart of Switzerland, Interlaken is within easy reach by public transport from Bern, Zurich, Basel and Geneva airports. Nestled between two lakes and surrounded by a stunning and unique mountain backdrop, the Congress Centre is centrally located between both train stations, making it easy to reach.
The conference rooms at the Congress Centre are just a few minutes’ walk away from the many hotels available in the vicinity. The short walk through Interlaken will be a welcome chance for delegates to unwind after a productive day at the Summit!
Details about speakers and how to book a place at EOS 2019 will be available in due course. For more information about the summit, visit www.europeanoutdoorsummit.com.
